BC Thanksgiving Food Drive! Collection on Saturday September 21, 2019

By Stephanie Shulhan in Community Events on September 3, 2019


We are very excited for the upcoming BC Thanksgiving Food Drive this month!

Started in 2009, the BC Thanksgiving Food Drive has collected more than 10 000 lbs of food each year in Richmond alone.  All food collected in Richmond goes to help Richmond residents going through financial difficulties.  Please visit their website to learn more about the BC Thanksgiving Food Drive.

Volunteers are delivering those fliers and bags to homes across Richmond, and will pickup donations on Saturday 21 September.  If you would prefer to deliver the donations to the Food Bank yourself, our warehouse will be open from 10 am to 2 pm on Saturday Sept 21 to accept your generous gift.

Thank you to everyone who donates during the BC Thanksgiving Food Drive – we are grateful for your support of our neighbours in need.  And a huge thank you to the BC Thanksgiving Food Drive volunteers, including everyone who organized, prepared the fliers and bags, those who’ll be dropping off empty bags to households in Richmond between Sept 14 – Sept 20, and those who’ll be picking up donations on Sept 21!
